One of the topmost thing which can contribute to speed up your website is optimized and compressed images. Using high res images may make your website look aesthetically pleasing but it can seriously slow down the performance. The best solution for this is image optimization.

Optimizing images allows you to compress images in the best way possible to ensure high functionality. Optimization, however, can differ from image to image depending on factors like the format, quality, size etc. 

Our extension helps in compressing and optimizing product images automatically without compromising any quality. It improves site performance which in turn helps in better user experience and brings more sale to the site.
